Kevin Jensen, PE, CEA

Managing PartnerLexington, MA

Kevin grew up in the Midwest where he went to college to pursue a degree in engineering but was undecided as to which discipline until he realized his interest in Architecture and a degree in Architectural Engineering combined both of his interests. Kevin knew he made the right choice when after graduation and moving to Philadelphia for his first job in an AE firm he passed his PE exam on the first try in the dimly-lit basement of the now-demolished Philadelphia Civic Center. He loves the challenge of solving problems and is adept at providing an MEP system approach that does not detract from the architectural design intent. Kevin has nearly 30 years of experience providing engineering services for college and university, private secondary schools, science and technology, healthcare, corporate office and historic preservation/adaptive re-use projects – which are his favorite. He finds that providing new MEP systems for historic buildings helps to marry the old with the new to infuse life into buildings that might otherwise fall obsolete.

Kevin is a proud father, a golfer and a patient teacher to young engineers at AHA. In fact, his favorite part of the job is passing on knowledge and the importance of a strong work ethic to these up-and-coming professionals – exactly as his entrepreneurial business-owner parents did for him. Kevin has been involved in some unique projects in his career from an Off-Track Betting Parlor in downtown Philadelphia to a new office/lab/vivarium building for Sandoz Pharmaceuticals (now Novartis) in Hanover, NJ to a new performing arts center (both theater renovation and new construction) for the Wheeler School in Providence, RI to the renovation of an Eero Saarinen designed student dormitory for the University of Pennsylvania to the conversion of the Hood Milk Processing Plant in Charlestown, MA into a corporate office, warehouse and IT co-location facility.
